    Outstanding work, Phil!! Doesn't look like the wait bothered him at all.

    Well done, my friend.

    Phil, that guitar would be worth waiting for, no matter how long it took.

    It's a beauty!

    Awesome job Phil! You nephew is one lucky guy. That smile on his face is priceless. Your tru-oil finish on this one inspired me to try it out.

    Great job, Phil, and you got it done long before Christmas! 2013 Christmas, anyway. I still want to cop a little feel of that shapely body! :twisted:

    That looks fantastic!!! Don't you just love it when you get to see the excitement from the recipient? That is wonderful.

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

    I'm the lucky one. He's a great guy, and I'm really proud of him. He's getting married early next year.
